Art of Dying Dedicate ‘Raining’ Lyric Video to Three Days Grace
Art of Dying are digging deeper into their ‘Vices and Virtues’ album by issuing a new lyric video for ‘Raining’ off their breakout disc. The track holds a special place for the band as it features a guest turn from former Three Days Grace vocalist Adam Gontier, and the band has decided to dedicate the release to Gontier and his former group.
‘Raining’ follows the prior ‘Vices and Virtues’ singles ‘Die Trying,’ ‘Get Thru This’ and ‘Sorry.’ In a mailing to fans, Art of Dying discussed the decision to make the dedication and why just beyond Gontier’s guest appearance that they chose to salute the whole band.
The statement reads as follows:
In light of Adam’s departure from the band last week, we are dedicating this lyric video to Adam, Brad, Neil, Barry and all of the Three Days Grace fans around the world. They have moved us with their music and we wish all of them the best on their new musical path’s and life journeys. The story behind the recording: As many of you know Cale and Adam are cousins, and grew up together in Ontario. Adam was kind enough to sing the second verse and do some harmonies with us in the studio. It’s been such an honour having Adam on our record and learning from his unique style and benevolent nature.
In a solo posting at the band’s Facebook page, Art of Dying frontman Jonny Hetherington added, “You created powerful music that inspired us in so many ways. Wishing you the best on all of your musical paths and life’s journeys.”
Those with a keen eye might also recognize another famous rocker in the video, as Disturbed‘s David Draiman turns up with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance. Art of Dying have a close association with Draiman and his Disturbed bandmate Dan Donegan, as the two rockers run Intoxication Records, which signed the group and opened the door to their current success.
